The 19-year-old full-back, who has previously enjoyed loan spells at Exeter City and Walsall, tweeted confirmation he was joining the Merseyside club today.

Wilson has fallen behind fellow academy product Nathan Ferguson in the pecking order and has been sent out on loan to get more minutes.

Midfielders Sam Field and Jonathan Leko have already joined Charlton Athletic on season-long loans.

League One and League Two clubs have until September 2 to complete loan moves.
